GSO Celebrates International Parcel Day with Parent Company, the GLS Group

San Ramon, California, May 29, 2018 - As part of the GLS Group, GSO took part in its first ever International Parcel Day, which was launched by GLS in 2015 as a day to do something positive for the community while placing a face behind the industry. “Transporting packages is part of our daily lives,” says Anne Putz, Head of Communications and Marketing at GLS. “On International Parcel Day, we want to highlight the people who make deliveries possible while doing something good for the community.”

Excited to join its parent company-GLS- in celebrating International Parcel Day, GSO partnered up with San Francisco based non-profit organization, Project Night Night, to assemble and deliver care packages for children in homeless shelters. Each year, Project Night Night provides 25,000 children across the country with Night Night packages containing childhood and educational essentials to feel secure, cozy, ready to learn, and significant. The GSO team got to work filling 50 tote bags, each one with a security blanket, a stuffed animal, a book, and a personal note from each volunteer. “GSO has been delivering packages in the Western U.S. for over twenty years; we are inspired by and happy to work with organizations in our community which enable us to utilize our delivery services to do something good for others.” said Andira Fara, Director of Marketing at GSO.

The GSO Team in the San Ramon Corporate Office is All Smiles after Assembling Night Night Packages to be delivered to children at a local shelter.
